Time for a UNIX Security Checkup
It’s 2012 and we all know security is important. With ominous hacking threats out there, companies are trying to keep themselves out of the headlines. That being said, just how secure are your UNIX systems? Can you comfortably say you don’t have to worry about anyone causing mischief on your systems?
First of all, you can’t know if you’re up to date on security patches until you know what patches are out there. To keep up to date, regularly visit these resources:
I usually check these sites weekly for any security patches/vulnerability that should be assessed. I tend to keep a closer eye on the AIX ones only because the Linux (Red Hat/SUSE) ones are constantly coming out. This is due to them posting security patches for other pieces of software included at install, such as Perl, RPM, Firefox, etc. AIX doesn’t really come with much installed, except AIX, so it only reports on mostly base OS and a select few other things such as SSH/SSL.
